In this new episode, you will learn a lot about Sunnis Brown’s life and her early years as an entrepreneur from strangling to make a living to be one of the top speaker and best-selling author in the field.
For example, when Sunni was quite young she wrote to her mum a letter and told her that she either wants to become a doctor or – if that doesn’t work the president of the united states. This might seem like a funny kids letter but this letter has guided Sunni through her life. Not growing up in a privileged family she had to believe in herself and work hard for her success.
This guiding principle actually led her to her upcoming book called DEEP SELF DESIGN™ which is based on the idea that you are in control of your own life. In fact, we all are in control of our own lives and our mind is often the biggest obstacle why we don’t reach our full life potential.
We follow her journey step by step, from working for the Grove, one of the first visual thinking consultancies on the planet before she moved to Austin, Texas where she started her own business.
We find out more about her work as an author and why riding a dragon and writing a book is a similar challenge. We talk about the serendipity that she got invited to TED2011 and how she prepared 4 months for the 6 minutes that has inspired more than 1.4 million people.
We compare the skill of graphic recording with sketch noting, do a “quickly ask round” and brainstorm together about the upcoming keynote at VizConf 2018. By the way it on the 13th of October and the tickets selling out quickly.
We recorded more than 90 minutes and therefore cut this recording into two episodes. This one will start from her childhood through her first book “Gamestorming” and her second book “The Doodle Revolution” and is a great inspiration for any creator or entrepreneur.
In the second episode, we hear about her experience at TED, her keynote at VizConf 2018 and her work on the upcoming book DEEP SELF DESIGN™ that helps you to reach your goals in life.
Enjoy this episode with Sunni Brown record on the 18th of September 2018.
